7:01 am
and as you can see we are her live for you in london this morning, this special edition "the early show," the royal engagements looking at butdful pictures of bucking hall palace where crowds are gathered, changing of the guard happening moments ago and of course a lot of buzz on the streets here, as well, for that royal engagement. prince william finally popping the question to his commoner girlfriend kate middleton now joining the royal family. harry there, is a lot of excitement here in the air in london this morning. >> good morning, maggie is off today. i'll tell you, just watching all of the pictures coming in from the uk yesterday, so exciting. she couldn't be any more beautiful and as it turns out, prince william is, indeed, prince charming. i mean, just fantastic and everybody talking about what a mo man tick he is.
7:02 am
>> absolutely. so many ways, this is the fairy-tale dream girls have. they want their prince charming, especially in the uk, they dream about prince william. we've heard how kate middleton dreamed of him in boarding school. and now, that fairy-tale is coming true. we know, of course, depop the question when they were on vacation. she, of course, said, yes, but now the real speculation begins as to whether it will be at mess stin area abbey or st. paul's cathedral, sparkling and splendid and over the top or more subdued to reflect, of course, the economic times? so now, we start with those questions including the where and the bh. today, the real work begins. after spending last night together at clarence house around the corner from buckingham palace, the royal couple will now meet with advisers to plan this country's most anticipated wedding in decades. >> we've been talking about it for a long time so, for us, it's a real relief and really nice to be able to tell it.
7:03 am
>> he carried his engagement with him three weeks in bis backpack before finally proposing last month vacationing in kenya. >> did you get down on one knee? >> we know kate tried on the ring. it fit and then gave it back to her fiancee for safekeeping. >> over the years, i knew things were getting better and better. we went through a few stumbling blocks as every relationship does but we picked ourselves up and carried on. >> when you go out with someone for quite a long time you get to know each other very, very well. you go through the good times, you go through the bad times both personally but in the relationship, as well. >> for three weeks, the engagement was their secret. the announcement even caught the queen by surprise, who said she is delighted, as is the father of the groochl. >> obviously thrilled, thank you very much. practicing long enough. >> prince harry says he is ecstatic to finally have a
7:04 am
sister while the in-lays couldn't be happier. >> we all think he's wonderful and extremely fongd of hichl. they make a lovely couple, great fun to be with and we've had a lot of laughs together. we wish them every happiness for the future. thank you. >> just where and when that future will begin isn't clear. planning a royal wedding in the midst of a recession presents unique challenges. with even the queen making cuts in palace staff, they'll need to plan a wedding simple enough to be considered tasteful yet grand enough to give the country a much-needed lift. >> you know, it's the first big wedding in a while so i think it should be -- >> kate will be a fantastic consort to william. i think she'll be brilliant for the country. she'll, again, she is very good with people. she's not wildly outgoing but incredibly polite and very gentle. >> while we wait for the news there are souvenirs to buy. they are all right printing the plates. so, more detail now on what we
7:05 am
can expect ginning us is ingrid seward, editor of "majesty magazine" writing about the royals some 17 years now. >> a bit longer. >> the perfect fern for us to ask. as you look at this, everything we learned yesterday really was a fairy-tale moment this sweet engagement which prince william held back on the detail as bit saying he wanted to keep it private. is it what you expected when we finally learned of an engagement? >> i think it was. i thought william would be very cool in the interview. and he was affectionate and patted her leg occasionally but he let her talk, which is pretty modern, you know. i think when charles and diana did their interview it was mostly charles that did the talking. >> it was. and sort of may i speak, may i not? you mentioned it is more modern. there is mention the family needs to modernize a bit. is kate middleton exactly what the family need at this point. >> i think she s. they are modernizing quite well but i think injection of glamour, beauty and youth is exactly what they need.
7:06 am
>> and it's been said actually the queen is fairly fond of her. >> the queen doesn't know her. they've only met once. but, prince charles is very fond of her and camilla is extremely fond of her as you can see from her interview yesterday. >> how important is that for kate as she joins this royal family, to have that backing? >> she needs that support. she's going to need a lot of support from them, although she's been around william if eight years, she doesn't really know what she's getting herself in for and she needs the support of the duke and duchess of corn wal, charles and camilla and the queen will be there in the background. >> you say she doesn't really know what she's getting herself in for. what is it she's now in for. >> i wish we know. none of us know what it's like to be in for. >> what is the like to join the royal family and marrying prince william, how significant of a change for her in her life? this morning sle wakes up and it is totally different. >> for starters she'll have a detective with her all the time and living in one of the royal residences when not with william
7:07 am
in his cottage in wales and will really have to watch everything she says and does and as fergie always said and diana told her, just keep smiling. that's what she sdimplts she has a beautiful smile. we see her on the cover of every paper this morning, radiant at every bride should be at this point. what do you expect from their wedding? >> i think it will probably be at westminster abbey but i'm always wrong. i think it will probably be at westminster abbey. they have what they call a magic 400 guests to invite i'm afraid poor kate will probably not have that many of her friends there. it will be very royal. >> among that 400, that is, dignitaries, heads of state, those are the 400 you are talking about they have to -- >> heads of state, dng how big an occasion it will be then the queen's immediate family and then, of course, kate middleton's family come a bit down the line. william will be determined not to let them be sucked in by the royal sort of machine, i think he wants them to have a bit of a say in this. >> they really seem to be making their own path, something, too,
7:08 am
diana started for her children, really wanting them to have this quote/unquote as normal a live as possible and seems se continuing that as much as he can even in this engagement. >> diana said to him as a young kid, you are going to have my engagement ring, william, for your fee awn see when you grow up and he's carried that through and he said make sure your fiance is your friend before do you anything else. >> which is what he said yesterday. and exactly why he thinks it will work because they were friends first s. this a royal marriage you see lasting? >> it has to last and william knows that better than anyone and kate comes from such a secure background unlike fergie and background both from broken homes. i think this is the thing the queen is really thrilled about, this girl has had a very happy childhood. and she's very together and she's sort of holds herself well, i think she knows what's going on. >> a fine role model. we'll look forward to talking more about this, of course in the weeks and months to come as
7:09 am
we build up. great to have you with us this morning. thank you. >> harry, back to you. >> all right, erica. thank you very much. ingrid, thank you. over to the news desk now where jeff glor is standing by. >> thank you very much. good morning, everyone. the russian man accused of selling millions in weapons to terror groups will be in court today in new york. viktor bout, called the merchant of death arrived in manhattan early this morning after

7:17 am
welcome back to the royal engagements this special edition of "the early show" live from london joined from tom abbie from i-tv. so many people waiting to hear about it. we were talking quickly in the break and you said prince william did a good job keeping this quiet, close to the vest. that's really his m.o., isn't it? >> yes. i mean, you know, many years ago, he didn't really -- you know, not wanting him to do this job at all, king, every time he's grown into it but the one thing he's kept, i shall think, a core sense he wants to live life on his terms in his way. yes, he's prepare to do things
7:18 am
expected of him but wants to control it to a degree. i think we saw that the way he handled this announcements, waited three weeks, kept it to himself, people were pretty sure he was engaged but people in his office waiting for him -- >> he seemed very affectionate with her, not always something you see from a royal couple. >> surely not. >> if ever. >> if ever, yeah. >> what about their demeanor, did you -- stood out to you, i should say, or did you notice, were there knowing glances? >> i mean, i've known them sort of reasonably well quite a long time so, you know, the interview was, i suppose, unrepresentative of our -- of the time we normally spend together. she was very nervous and i spent half an hour upstairs before and we had a laugh about things in an attempt to relax her. i think we are all conscious of the last interview like that charles and diana, spectacularly awful. he said whatever love is still
7:19 am
gets replayed. i said beforehand, look this is your happy day. i've only one task to try to avoid mucking it up. people are curious about you. this is -- normally i cover politics. it is a conversation. i just want, you know, give you a chance to relax and talk about yourselves. hope he fully that went okay. what are they like normally? they are very -- they love each other. they are very fries nice, they are good friends, great sense of humor and enjoy each other's company. i think a significant point to make they put a lot of thought into this. i would bet a large amount of money they'll never be divorced or anything like that. they know they are stuck in there until the end of time together. i can't promise they'll be happy. i hope they will. i'm sure they were but they know they are in there and put a lot of thought into that. >> you mentioned, too, the half hour you spent with them before the interview. >> yeah. >> kate middleton was understandably a bit nervous. the nerves of coming out and doing this interview or the nerves of the reality setting in she will be in there for the rest of her life? >> i don't think she's worried about that.
7:20 am
i think they've devoted an awful lot of thought to that and i think they are happy together. they know -- in a curious way, i suppose like the whole prince philip marriage. if you know you are stuck together until the end of time, in a way it almost makes it easier, no point carrying on with argument because you are still stuck there next week, next month. in a way i don't think that's their problem but has never done anything like this before and suddenly has to come out and do an interview watched by hundreds of millions of people and replayed. if it had gone wrong, would have hahned her slash all of us for years and years and years. i think that was a very -- i can't imagine a more intimidating interview for three of us who know each other quite well to sit down and do that interview but we got through it. >> you know them quite well. back in the states we seem to think kate middleton seems so quote-unquote normal. are they as normal as they seem to an outsider. >> harry and william have have
7:21 am
been very unlike other royals the william is a little more conscious of his position, he has to be, even more careful. harry is, frankly, quite stupid in the past, a very charming guy. >> right. he's learning. >> he's learning. but, you know, they -- yeah, they are normal and nice. >> it is great. we enjoyed watching it and the interview. thanks for stopping by and giving more insight. i'm sure we'll see more in the coming months and there will be more to come. you are watching "the early show" on cbs. ♪ daisy, do a dollop our family-owned company makes daisy... with 100% natural farm-fresh cream. no artificial ingredients. no preservatives. and no added hormones. ♪ daisy, do-do a dollop

8:09 am
have already begun but are those comparisons fair? introduced to the world as a shy, demure teen, diana quickly blossomed into a once-in-a-generation princess. loved around the world for her warmth, compassion, and devotion. >> i would love to have met her and -- and obviously she's an inspirational woman to look up to. >> with tuesday's official announcements the parlor game of comparing kate to william's late mother kicked into high gear, beginning with the ring. >> it's my mother's engagement ring so i thought it was quite nice because obviously she's not going to be around to share in the fun and excitements but my way of -- >> let's see the ring. >> 30 years earlier in a strikingly similar setting, the 18 carat and diamond stunner graced the hand of lady diana
8:10 am
spencer. just 19, she dated charles only six months before their engagement, a far cry from the more than eight-year courtship for this royal couple. >> i'm also glad i've had the time to sort of grow and understand myself more, as well. >> often described as confident kate once quipped the prince was lucky to have her. >> i think everyone can see she's not like diana. she's not a troubled girl from a broken home. she's a very easy-going, happy, well-adjusted girl. >> despite her background oovpz, diana's parents' bitter divorce hahned her, her own marriage arranged for prince charles far from the fairy-tale she dreamed of as a little girl. yet there, is a feeling this royal union will be different, that kate middleton, the commoner backed bay strong family will write her own ending, perhaps a true fairy-tale at last. >> it's about carving your own future. no one's going to -- no one's trying to fill my mother's shoes
8:11 am
and what she did was fantastic. it's about making her own future and kate will do a very good job of that. >> quite an uproar with andrew morton's revealing biography of princess diana was published in 1992, his latest is a look at hollywood royalty tee. he joining us this morning to talk about both. great to have you with us. >> good morning. >> you knew princess diana? what would she think of the woman who would, in fact have been her daughter-in-law? >> she'd be thrilled but a little jealous, as well, i think, because she's been approaching 50 now and seeing the baton, certainly the fashion baton had been passed from one generation to the next so i'm sure she would be advising kate but also a bit of sadness losing a son, as well. >> i want to make sure i get this correct, she told her son, if you find someone you love in life, you must hang onto it and look after it. it appears he has taken his
8:12 am
mother's advice. >> very much so. i was vuk bit fact there were three of them at the engagement yesterday, a bit crowded of course diana, the ghost of diana hung very heavily there and, yes, i mean, she always said to me that the throne will jump a generation, jump prince charles and go to william. and she was always grooming william for a happy life and, also, for a fulfilling life but also where he would do his duty. i think kate would be a very solid partner for him. far more than the queen and prince philip. >> diana said no one ever took her aside and said she was 19, this is what you should expect. >> absolutely. i mean, in a way, symbolically, prince charles asked diana to marry him in the nursery at windsor castle and that symbolized their relationship. they had only known each other effectively 28 days and most of that time camilla parker bowls, his wife, was presents. diana was a virgin and really
8:13 am
didn't know what was going on. kate has road tested the royal family and prince william rod tested her and she knows what she's getting into it, albeit, yesterday was her first real taste of life in the goldfish bowl. >> how do you think she did? >> i think she was nervous. i think it was significant the one question she fluffed on when asked about diana said she was an inspirational figure but lost her way a bit. >> is there any way to answer that question because diana is still so loved not only here but around the world. she's an icon. >> face it, diana was unique, the people's princess and people felt a tremendous rl moved by her passing, what, 13 years ago now. and kate still has her royal learning permit, just learning the ropes. when diana first entered the royal family, she was si lents, by prince charles's side and utterly overwhelmed. when i went on the first tour of

8:20 am
any body fluids. that's more protection for you. >> it was time to shine. ♪ i need dollars, dollars, dollars what i need ♪ in the end it took me only 20 minutes to make the bed. the meks time you think of coming and staying in a hotel and not tipping the chambermaid, think again. this is very hard work. cash in hand i set my sights getting as far east as i could go. the issue was. i think i need to take two seconds and figure out where i am and how. i have no idea what to do. to be honest with you, let's stop the interview because i need to -- but i soon frpged out i could afford to rent a car one way from coeur d'alene, idaho to denver, colorado, if i could just get to the rental agency before they close. >> let's go, let's go, let's government and it seemed again like my luck was turning. $72.60 all the way to denver.
8:21 am
do the happy dance. the forecast between idaho and colorado called for snow. unfortunately, i was a weatherman without a coat. see, i had one with i get into my friend devin's car in bellingham, washington but not when i got out in seattle. so, i needed help. luckily, it came in the form of a caring e-mail. anyway you could drop it off? i don't even know where i'm going next from the local four-square church, they brought me some warmth thank you so much, i can't tell you what this means to me. the kindness in coeur d'alene didn't stop there five dollar footlongs. >> amber grant was nice enough to buy me, a perfect stranger,ing dinner and her young daughter picked up exactly how i was feeling. >> i want to go home now. >> i want to go home, sweetie, i want to go home, too. >> so, what's the plan, dave?
8:22 am
>> well, first of all, i left that stinking coat in the hotel in the lobby that i cleaned. i left the coat i got. i have no coat again. i mean, i'm so tired, i'm not even thinking, so i need a coat. i'm still nine hours from denver. i've got to get the car back, or it starts rolling into that second day. so, i don't know what i'm -- i don't know what i'm going to do with that. i have almost no money again to set aside $79 and something cents to pay for it. i'm going to try to work in bozeman this morning and i don't know. i got to fly -- >> you sound beaten down. just know, we are behind you. we think you can do it. we think. >> actually, jeff, actually in front of me. you're in front of me by several thousand miles. >> it is true. >> this is true. stop losing your coats, man. >> your luck is going to change today, i promise! >> i'm counting on that. i miss you guys. >> all right, buddy. >> i miss shaving and showers, i

8:24 am
we're going on live a little early here. there's a news conference and we're listening in right now.
8:25 am
>> they did an unbelievable job in search and rescue. combined efforts of the citizens and the government, we did well of escaping injuries. the rest is sorting everything out. we briefed the mayor and i guess i woke you up around 3:00 and gave her a briefing. i kept her up to date and throughout the morning. she got here and we briefed her and she got a unified command briefing. she's prepared to answer most of the questions and most of the agencies are represented behind me. >> reporter: and again, this was a tornado in fact? >> well, the national weather service is in route. at this point, i don't think it makes a difference. it was extremely high winds and it did an unbelievable amount of damage. >> reporter: can you describe what you've seen? >> i've seen roofs lifted off
8:26 am
of buildings and blown a block away. there's been significant tree damage. and again, this is an absolute miracle we're not here talking about serious injury and deaths based on the pass overs that i've seen and the photos and the damage. it's an absolute miracle. i'm pleased we're all on board and we have the emergency shelter set up and everyone that needs to be here is here to make sure we have the needs of the residents taken care of. we had to move cars and everything that needs to be done to keep people in the lupe on what we're doing minute by minute. >> and do you know how many homes have been effected? >> we have over a thousand power outages. almost a hunch >> and right now, we're making assessments of the houses and we'll give you a count of the
8:27 am
damages and how many will be displaced and as soon as we get that, we'll let you know. >> reporter: do you know anything about injuries? >> we know there's an injury of an arm being broken. when you see the pictures, you'll see there will be stories about someone being in the next room or what one person happened not to be at home last night that would have been dead because the roof came into her bedroom on her bed. we're going to hear a lot of those stories. this damage was horrific and it could have been seriously deadly. i'm just very -- we're very blessed today we're not talking about multiple lives being lost. >> reporter: what are they doing now as far as tree limbs down and wire down. >> we're doing everything and moving trees and the private landowner for pinewood is out clearing debris. we have dpw helping to relocate
8:28 am
cars in the path. we're making sure we're keeping the roads clear. unfortunately, we have emergencies, we'll work like plan orchestra. everyone's doing their part to make it happen. -- it's going to be devastating and it's going to take a while for us to get people back to normal. many won't be able to go back to their homes. that's a significant amount of unrest and trauma. i'm grateful for the red cross for coming in to support the families and i'm going to be
8:29 am
asking other citizens to pitch in and help the families. we're coming up on the holidays and they won't have a place to have thanksgiving in. we're blessed and grateful we don't have serious injuries, we don't have loss of life -- but people's lives won't be back to normal for some time. >> and the winds are getting stronger. >> definitely, we have inspectors out and we'll inspect the buildings and many of them because of the significant impact of the winds going out. , many are unsound and we have the inspectors out inspecting the properties and marking the ones unsafe. and we don't have any further risk of injury or lives lost because people want to go back in, if they're unstable, they're unstable. >> any idea of how the roads will be? >> we're doing all we can to
8:30 am
get the debris off of the road. we don't know if we've had an estimated time, we have everything that we have at our disposal here working on getting the roads back open. >> any idea on how long it will take to get the homes repaired? >> whole sections of the complexes are lifted off and blown a block away. there are 2 x 4's that look like spears into the side of buildings. when we say we'll talk about people who would have been injured or killed, we'll hear those stories. that's the type of damage i've seen. >> >> reporter: we're talking about dozens of town homes, any plans for them to have a place to stay. >> our housing is working with the red cross and we'll make sure people have a place to go. that's why i stressed, we're doing our part and they'll need additional support.
8:31 am
we're going into the holiday season. think about the families. these families will need help, too. we'll be in touch about how we can come together and be in support for the families. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> we just heard from mayor stephanie rawlings-blake. and roofs were off and pieces of the houses [people talking over each other] >> three people only had life threatening injuries and one little girl had a broken arm and we're waiting to hear from the national weather service to hear if it was a tornado, but it doesn't matter. so many were affected and so many people don't have a place to sleep tonight. >> thank you. all of that in north east
8:32 am
baltimore and parkville overnight. that was at 1:30 this morning. we'll switch you back over to "the early show" now and we'll continue to cover whatever the wind storm amounts to here. h for. back to you. >> that may be the toughest part of all, making the decision saying to go with it, this is the life we'll lead. >> a lot of people talking about the similarities. >> are you ready? dave, of course on the road with "no way home" and actually is coming true, he is not going to get home. >> he may not. i may never be fully ready but i'll try. >> get used to it. >> a nice day in the s s
8:33 am
>> that's your weather. now here's harry. >> for many of us the most important part of thanksgiving dinner are the leftovers but any other time of the year if we buy too much food, we throw it out. and all of that waste really does pile up, as "early show" consumer correspondent susan koeppen found out. good morning. >> good morning, harry. we're talking about billions of dollars of food being tossed out every year. so, what's being tossed out the most? fruits, veggies, meat and dairy
8:34 am
top the list. between home and work, the kirch bombers are one busy family. between the three of them they find little time to eat the food they buy. you feel you are buying food and just don't use it. >> well, you know, that's the problem. we buy a lot of food and put it in here with the expectation of using it. >> how much food do you think you waste? >> a lot. >> a lot. their pantry is full. >> i see mold going on with this bread. >> this bread is -- yeah, this is going away. >> most of this food will be thrown out. >> yeah, this willing be thrown out. >> how long do you think you've had that. >> maybe three weeks. >> cans of tomato paste they've never used, moldy sausages, eggs and milk past their expiration date. i was looking at your eggs, october 2nd, they expired sgloong a freezer filled with half a cow. i didn't, half a grass-fed krou they never got around to eating and don't plan to. >> just keep pulling this stuff
8:35 am
out of here for a while, if you want. >> they aren't all that unusual. americans throw away 150 billion pounds of food each year for. the average american family, that equals more than $1300 in wasted food. >> we waste a staggering amount of food in america. >> jonathan bloom author of "american wasteland" says we waste food because we buy too much in bulk and let food spoil before we get a chance to eat it. >> people need to shop smarter, think about the amount of food that they have on hand before they go to the store. >> in the kirch bomber home, the wasted food is enough to fill an entire countertop. when you look at this pile of food that is going into the trash, what do you think? >> it's a shame. this is horrible. i can't believe it's in my refrigerator. >> it would be real nice to have, you know, the extra money rather than the extra cow. >> wow. that's not strange, either, or unusual? >> no. they are a normal american
8:36 am
family throwing out food every day. we'll talk about things you can do to help prevent the waste that's going on. first of all, your refrigerator, set it up like a grocery store. things about to expire, the stuff about to go bad, put it towards the frobt front so people will go in and grab it and eat it also use the freezer, you buy meat, put it in the freezer, deli meat, turkey you buy at the deli. >> label it and know what's in there. >> you can store the deli meat up to three months and also bread, you can keep it in the freezer, use it by the slice when you need it -- >> like that family there, the bread, the whole loaf turned moldy. if you took half, stuck it in a bag and put it in a freezer you would have it a week later. >> you could keep it. >> a long time. >> now, we have a tip from koeppen's kitchen. >> this is a model of koeppen's kitchen? >> what i do in my house. i have to say i have very little wasted food. keep in mind i have a husband and three little kids and we eat a lot in our house but when i
8:37 am
come home from the grocery store instead of putting everything in the fridge or on the countertop, i put my fruits and veggies, stuff that go bad fast i chop them up and put them in fridge. when somebody wants a piece of pineapple they are not looking at that thinking i'm not going to cut that up, that will sit there. they go in and grab pineapple. >> you save so much more buying it this way and cutting it yourself, you save a lot of dough. >> absolutely. that's my tip. it is very hard to keep fruit in my house. >> how long did it take you to >> a while. store, the last thing i want to >> you do. >> but i do and they eat it. >> is this all right? >> you can have some of that. >> thank you very much. hmm. i love peppers. susan koeppen, thank you. now, here's erica. >> harry, thanks. it is impossible to think of the royals and especially princess
8:38 am
diana without the way she was hounded from the first day she was introduced until the last moment of her life, hounded by the paparazzi. the questions afterwards as to whether or not they would back off a bit. now, the question is kate middleton ready for what may be waiting for her. to help us get a better feel no that neil sean and arthur edwards royal photographer for "the sun" good to have you both with us this morning. is kate middleton, you think, ready for what could be waiting? >> nobody really knows who's ready. i mean, you know, when you join the royal family, how could you possibly know? there is nothing to compare it with. i do think what's not easier for her but, you know, a she's older, certainly a bit more wiser, and i think she has the beauty of looking at history and seeing what sort of direction she wants to go down. when you sort of accomplish yesterday, you could see she's quite a feisty girl. a bit of feistiness. >> and a little taste of that, as well, she's come out in the
8:39 am
past when she was unhappy with photos taken or information that was out there, armed with her lawyers and said, this is not okay some. >> that's right. also, we have human rights laws here now where people can do that. and, you know, she's protected by those laws and the paparazzi know if they go over the mark, they do anything that interferes with her privacy, she can take them to court. i'm sure the palace will do that. they can't have what happened to diana happen to this girl. this girl, as neil said, is 28, she's ready for this job now. it is going to be a tough, tough job. joining this family is not easy. look at the history. but, you know, she's determined. i think looking at william and kate yesterday, he's left it this late because he wanted to be certain and i think this couple will be married forever, i really do. and he will protect her and the palace will protect her. they've got brilliant, brilliant staff under the umbrella of buckingham palace now, own scotland yard with her now.
8:40 am
that won't happen, anyone who comes to close will -- >> something you don't have to worry about at all anymore as a royal? >> the thing, is you can never really account for any public gaffe you may do. i mean, thinking of fergie. >> harry. >> but, you know, i'm not really sort of saying she would do that but certain things like arthur remembers could be the wrong photograph. remember the hot pants, the roller discount. >> a charity event she organized showing her laying down in them but part of the evening but taken out of context. >> misrepresented. i thought for sher she looked absolutely beautiful yesterday, very good comport mant, fabulous hair. >> right, the whole package. >> lovely. >> you could see as he walked in, he as arthur said, i think he was letting her have some of the limelight but you could see i thought when he talked about the break, that she kind of wanted to chip in and i think you will see more of that as it
8:41 am
progresses. >> she's definitely much more outspoken, she's much more sure of herself, more confident than, of course, diana was, also 28 versus 16789 as a photographer, though, you obviously have a certain eye for pictures and what we see in people in pictures. as you watched them together, what really jumps out at you about this couple? >> so comfortable with each other. the body language were such they knew exactly what each other was going to say almost. that's because they've been together so long. they know each other very well. you know, william chatted to us beforehand, with kate, and they went separate groups so confident she could handle sher lf. i thought that was brilliant. you could answer any question and she would answer truthfully and he would answer truthfully. that confidence in each other i thought came true. the first interview with charles and diana, i mean, he kind of nursed her through that and she was a young, demure thing tirnlsts was awkward to watch. >> one of the wos interviews ever. when you look back on it 20 years later it looks awful but, you know, this interview yesterday, when you look on that
8:42 am
